As TE ALONZO MAYES walks into WENDYS and asks the cashier to "SUPERSIZE" his order of burgers and fries....you can hardly believe then....that a man the size of G JAMIE NAILS can go into SUBWAY....and order just a TUNA SUB on whole wheat please? And a Diet COKE?
Well....thats the way it really appears. I am impressed with the way that NAILS has approached this off-season. This guy was aorund the 400 pound mark last camp....and just did not have the conditioning in this hot, sunny camp weather...to make it through without a struggle. Now....only 1 year later....NAILS is "down" to around the 340 pound mark.,..and he really is starting to make his mark for a roster spot.
I think everyone has heard WANNY rave about NAILS....and his work ethic this off-season. From the day that he signed on....he has been in that weight room. He also signed up...one of those dietician specialists...who apparently is worth every cent that NAILS is paying him or her. Lots of folks have noticed his new lean and mean look....and that is what you would call "Motivation".
Thus far....I feel that NAILS has really impressed the coaches on the field.....as he is pretty hard to push back.....the only thing JAMIE has to NAIL down better.....is his pass-blocking ability....which he is working on. But clearly....the guy is motivated...and I really believe that he will make the final roster this season. Along with SETH MCKINNEY.....he will provide the line...some much better depth at the Guard position.
ALONZO MAYES should have taken a "bite" out of NAILS work-ethic this off-season.....if not....at least hired that dietician.
Two players.....going in opposite directions....and to different restaurants.....MAYES and NAILS... DCH
